FINAL ARGUMENT is the dramatic story of Ted Jaffe, a district attorney who sends a convicted murderer to Death Row, and returns to the same courtroom ten years later in a passion to save that same man's life. A masterly tale of murder and marital infidelity, this best-selling novel is set in the rarefied world of Florida beachside multimillionaires, and features the rarest of heroes - a criminal lawyer with a conscience.

The London Daily Express hailed it as "a spellbinding courtroom drama."
